Configure should've picked up the fact that Cygwin uses POSIX fcntl, and 
not BSD flock and not define HAVE_FLOCK.

The only tweaking I remember with GDBM 1.7.3 was to remove the -lc from
LIBS Makefile when linking the conversion and test programs.

  $ bash configure
  $ make 
  $ make LIBS= progs

and that was it.
